We are a home-based, veteran family-owned and operated business whose mission is to offer you that personal touch and uniqueness you’ve been looking for, but difficult if not impossible to find in today’s world of mass production. Our goal is to always make all of our customers happy by treating them like a member of our family.
I’m a retired veteran of the U.S. Air Force. I served 20 years and have worked many different jobs. After my retirement, I developed an interest in Stained Glass which led me to Glass Etching (although I am self-taught, I am a perfectionist who demands quality). Glass etching has become my passion, as well as sublimation. Over time I’ve wanted to expand my business to other areas, but still manage to incorporate glass in some way.
The type of glass etching I do is in a sandblasting cabinet, which allows me to create different, unique designs in glass. It’s amazing how I can take a piece of glass and do surface level or deep carving and shading to make subtle or dramatic works of art. If you’re looking for a unique gift, whether it’s a glass etched item or a sublimated gift, you’ve come to the right place! Check out our website and the many things we’ve created, just for you!
